If you continue to struggle in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive despite putting in many hours of practice, you may want to rethink some of your in-game settings. Finding perfect CSGO sensitivity might just help you to win more games.
Copying the in-game settings of CSGO pros may sound tempting, but it won’t necessarily change your performance. Mouse sensitivity is something that should be left to personal preference. But finding the perfect CSGO sensitivity can be tricky, considering many confusing methods requiring you to sit down with a calculator.
Here are a few methods that might help you find the perfect mouse sensitivity in CSGO.
This is one of the oldest, most accurate, and most popular methods of interpreting sensitivity. If you want the “perfect” number in its trueest meaning, follow these steps.
While this method shows accurate numbers, it might not be the best way to find your CSGO sensitivity. There are other options available.
Your sensitivity depends more on your play style. While the binary method would deliver the precise number, it might not suit your play style. Whether you should have high or low sensitivity depends heavily on your team role.
If you’re an AWPer for your team, you might want to practice more on low sensitivity. Consistency and locking heads are crucial for someone who plays from long range with one-shot weapons like AWP. Keeping your crosshair locked on a moving target becomes a menace on high sens. So keep your number on average or low to AWP efficiently. On 800 DPI, it’s recommended to not go below 0.5 if you prefer low sensitivity.
High sens works best for entry fraggers as an entire team relies on them to clear out multiple angles quickly. Peeking off angles and turning corners can be tricky for someone playing on sensitivity under 1.5 on 800 DPI. At 800 DPI, it’s recommended to not go higher than 2.0 if you prefer a high sensitivity.
The best and easiest way to find your ideal number is just by tracking heads.
